There’s much more to our world’s oceans than what's at the surface. Deep-sea scuba divers can only safely dive about 100 meters below the water, but far below that threshold lurks a dark, mysterious world filled with shipwrecks and strange animals. In the video above, animated series RealLifeLore takes viewers on a virtual tour through the ocean’s depths, descending 10,927 meters down to its floor—well beyond "The Scary Zone," where the water pressure will kill you and giant squid roam.
